The town lias a  population of about 230,000, of which  about 1(50,00 arc natives, 50,000 half  breeds between Chinese and Philippine  islander-, 15,000 Chinese aud f>,000  .European Spaniards. ^ Outside the  Spaniards, there are only about 250  white men in tho eity. Tho town's  commerce is about $9,000,000 a year,  largely iu wood and sugar.      ;  If,- as reported j the governor general  has surrendered the entire islands to  tlie United States, the Americans  have a heavy task ahead of thorn in  controlling the.islands, .tor the population is totally incapable of self government and the governor "' must be an  a'utocr'at of the sternest type.  TVill Wo Celebrate?   '  The people of Moyie City havo only  ten days in which to make ��� up their  minds as to whether or not they will  celebrate the Queen's birthday.  Some fitting program should be arranged for the occasion, and ' there is  undoubtedly plenty of material for the  different games and sports among tne  residents of this place.    '���  Some talk is being heard of Moyie  City joining hands with Swansea, our  sister city at the head of the lake,'and  having a celebration at the last named  place. If this is e agreed upon the  steamer" .Echo will mako excurion  trip3 between here and the head of the  lake during the day, thus affording the  people an opportunity of a pleasant  ride on the lake.

He says that the people rin  the east are regaining confidence in  British Columbia, especially in East  and West Kootenay,- and that they  are again looking for invatments here.  Of coiirse they ate more careful than  they were a year or two ago, and must  be convinced that their'investments  are safe before they can bo pursuaded  to risk their money. He found many  anxious inquirers.after the new towns  along thc Crow'3 ISTest road, especially  Moyie City.  Mr. Dorsey folio wed the new road  from Fort Macleod, and says that, he  considers Moyie City and Coal Creek  thc makings of two of the rric'st important points on tho entire route.  .j Crow's Nest Kailway Plans.  The Fort Steele Prospector of May  7th publishes an interview with F.  W. Peters, district freighfagent of the  C. P.R., in .which he says���..that the  company proposes to carry freight  through,the Crow's Nest Pass to the  -end of the>trrck as the line progresses  westward,-aud the people would be  able to take -advantage 'of this in ��� a  few-weeks, or as soon as the steel 'got  within 'economical teaming distance.  The rails should" reach the Kootenay  river by July.    ' ���  The rates will be based on ; mileage,  so that in case, say, of through freight  from the east, the - charges would be'  identically Ihe same .-as. those charged  to'points on the main line the same  distance from tho point of shipment.  As to passenger .traffic, until the railway was completea and the regular  service inaugurated, tickets would be  sold only as far west as Macleod, but  construction trains would always be  on the move and passengers could  use- them^ but of course they would  have to take the chances of delay incident-to travel under such circumstances. The company would do all  it could; and at the earliest possible  moment'to give whatever accommodation was possible to the people of this  district,  Tom Slim-key Knocked out.  Jim 'Jeffries, the .big Calitornian  boxer, and Tom Sharkey, - the hard  headed sailor; fought 20 rounds in the  prize ring in San Francisco last Saturday; The battle was won by Jeffries,  Sharkey took his defeat coolly and  showed few marks from the drubbing  he had received.

Wo know that  life is fuller, that tilings we never dreamed  of gladden and make life easier materially  nnd more worth living Intellectually. Yes,  these are trlto truths, but.  no  thoughtful  woman believes that the general aim is as  plovoting, as conservative, that the influence- against dissipation  and  the coarser  grnln  of lifo's converse-und action is as  jnrgooras strong as it was in tlfolr young  day.  There, is no doslro to brlDg baok tho  formality and stilted stiffness of Miss  < Austen's heroes and heroines. It takes all  her charm of genius and humor to.mako'  them real men and women to us.

While it has made grer+t progress  during the past ten months, it has  ��� hever experienced a boom, neither  does it cvor want one. It has never  wont beyond itself, aud, therefore, will  never encounter that set baok which  must necessarily came to all towns of  the fake boom order,  But when it is taken into consideration tho rapid strides' which this  place has made in the past few  mouths under extremely adverse circumstances,'in tlie way of poor transportation faoilities and exorbitant  freight rates to' contend with, it is  easy to imagine the progress sho will  will make when conneoted with the  outside world by rail, and the freight  rates reduced to a minimum.  While Moyie City has one of the  most desirable locatious for a town  ' site to be found in the district, yet it  is not upon this claim.that it lays its  foundation for a "large city. It requires more than a pretty to>vnsite to  make a city���if must,have resources  'surrounding it to keep it up, and  Moyie City has them, it has bodies  of high grade ore right at its door���  thousands.of .tons blocked out and  large quantities on the dumps ready  for shipment���and hundreds of rich  i)rospecU3 surrounding, only awaiting  capital and labor to develop them and  convert them into dividend paying  mines.  The turning point for the Moyie  lake district is at hand, and tho men  who for the _ past six or eight years  have packed their grub and .blankets  on their backs 30, -10 and o.ven 50  miles and opened up and developed  tlie country will receive the recompense which they deserve for their  patience und poi-aev_rance.  the r;hilippir|C i'siavicls, that, she >>iU  over haye.

'Tt  Pacific  It is wonderful how public opinion  will so quickly change; beforo the war  ��� between tlie United States and Spain  leading nieii'of all nations, -including  the United States, were wont to say  that Spain's navy was superior to  that of the United States,and that the  United States navy was liable to be  destroyed at any time by the Spanish  Ueet, but since the decisive victory of  Admiral Dewey the whole comment  seems to be "I told you so." Admiral  Dewey seems to have had a different  opinion regarding the power of the  American war vessels-and his men, for  with six vessels, not one of which was  an armored ship, he, followed the  Spanish Ueet into Manila harbor right  under cover, of the Spanish forts and  practically destroyed their entire ��� Ueet  and with scarcely any loss to his own.  The winners against the American  navy since Dewey's splendid victory  have forgotten that they eaid anything  about- the weaknoba of the American  tdiips and have turned their attention  tu-di.-jcrying'the prowess of thc lalid  forces and when tho land forces of  both countries meet in battle, if thoy  ever do,,theso winners will be just uo  badly disappointed :i_ they were ut the  n-.suk of this 'navel engagement.
